Steelhead Guided Fishing Expedition

If you’re looking for a legendary Steelhead trip of a lifetime, look no further than the Clearwater! Aside from its world-renowned status and stories of enormous 20 pounders lurking below, this shallow river is perfect for drifting bait – inviting anglers to come in search of those prized 10 to 12 lb. B-run beauties. It is not uncommon for our Orofino Idaho fishing guides to put you onto 20 or more Steelhead in a day!

Our local and experienced guides cover a 40-mile section of the river beginning in Lewiston, Idaho, and extending into the town of Orofino, Idaho. The Clearwater River is a very scenic river with plenty of sights of Bald Eagles, Deer, Elk, River Otter, and numerous other critters that roam the Clearwater mountainside.

Alongside monster Smallmouth Bass at Dworshak is home to the highest number of Kokanee in the state of Idaho. Although our Kokanee don’t get as big as some other fisheries, we have a generous limit (25 per angler) and it usually isn’t difficult filling the freezer with these tasty treats. Our guides like to smoke or can these fish to make delicious dips or sandwich spreads.

Great time fishing with knowledgeable guide. Hot lunch was nice but while parked on the beach seen two fish caught. Maybe a sandwich while fishing instead.

Fished 2 days with Captain Pepe and his crew in Cabo. These guys were fantastic. Had us in Fish from the start. 13 Marlin and 5 big Mahi in two days. If you are going to fish in Cabo, do yourself a favor and book with Reel Time.

Our guide Jack worked hard to ensure we had the best opportunities to catch Salmon and Steelhead. His knowledge of all aspects of fishing made this a great opportunity for us and he gave us many opportunities to catch and land fish. We landed 5 steelhead and had several other opportunities, but were unable to connect on all of them. Overall, it was a great trip and a great day to be fishing with an expert in his field.
